The organ of Brentwood Cathedral was rebuilt and enlarged by Percy Daniel & Co Ltd of Clevedon for installation in the new cathedral, dedicated in 1991. It was sited at the west end of the original Gothic nave of Brentwoods Victorian Catholic church, in a case designed by the architect of the new cathedral, Quinlan Terry.
It is now a fine exponent of the English Romantic tradition, suited to the performance of organ music of all periods, varied accompanimental purposes, as well as recital and concert work. James Devor was born in London and he continued his studies both there as well as in Norwich and Essex where he has gained a considerable reputation for his performances.
His studies continue in 2005 on the degree course at the Royal College of Music. Already a holder of several awards, he was organ scholar of Brentwood Cathedral between 2001 and 2004 and he twice directed courses in organ-playing for the Royal School of Church Music.
